Zuni would fire, with safety on, when pylon is powered on, and so on. A-4, F-111, and F-15E had notorious reputations with certain weapons. The release mechanism also has to be compatible aircraft electric system and emergency jettison.

Long story short, I've been taking a crash course in aerodynamics lately, and this falls into the line of the one of the first things I kearned : little changes make a big difference =)
